  • The Jósika domain in Surduc (Sălaj County, Romania) is a place that is not that very well-known by international tourists. For this particular reason, the most notable local attraction, the Jósika Castle is not that swarmed by visitors. Built between the 17th and the 19th centuries, the castle complex consists of a crypt (called the “Baron’s Crypt” by the locals) and the low-rise estate on the bank of the Someș River. Formerly called the Csáky Mansion, it was later renamed after the founder of the Hungarian romantic novel, Miklós Jósika, who lived there between 1824 and 1853. In fact, this is the place where he wrote one of his most renowned works: “Abafi”. The castle was added to the List of Historical Monuments by the Ministry of Culture.
